FAMA Quartet

The FAMA Quartet is one of this country’s best when it comes to interpreting contemporary Czech and international works. As a frequent guest of the Prague concert series Presence, Umělecká beseda and The Beauty of Today, it regularly presents compositions by contemporary composers, both classic works from the avant-garde and more traditional schools of the 20th century (Schoenberg, Berg, Webern, Kagel, Lutosławski, Xenakis) and more modern major Czech and European composers (Adámek, Kopelent, Loudová, Pudlák, Srnka, etc.). The quartet has appeared at the festivals Prague Spring (2011, 2016), Contempuls (2008, 2010), Ostrava Days, Israel Festival in Jerusalem and Afyonkarahisar Klasik Muzik Festivali (Turkey) as well as concerts in Japan. Its members are players with leading Czech orchestras and often take up invitations to various seminars and workshops dedicated to the interpretation of contemporary music both locally (Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and in Bratislava) and further afield (Romania, Turkey). They regularly record for Czech Radio.
